Can you see me?

B and I were out at the barn yesterday and saw 3 (yes three!) preying mantis' on the hay bales. I was bummed I didn't have my camera because how often do you see that many?

Anyway, I went back today and the one that blended in the best was in the same exact place. Can you find him?

I've always loved them...even though they bite the heads off their mates!

last week gator was in the garage and found a preying mantis hiding on the under side of his sister's bicycle seat. he had a nice, safe view of the doings in the garage...but gator is a really observant fellow and spotted him.

we caught him and kept him for one day before letting him go. it's fun to have "pets" from time to time :-)

ps: by "we", I actually mean not me. gator and his friend did all the catching. but i supplied the 1/2 gallon mason jar and the basil and banana piece. left the catching of live bugs to feed it to the boys though.
